A Useful Tool for Tracking Local Spending in NYS
The Empire Center for New York State Policy at the Manhattan Institute has unveiled a handy new benchmarking tool to "compare and evaluate per-capita spending and tax rates for counties, towns, cities and villages."
The Benchmarking New York tool is easily used and quite handy. “By giving taxpayers the information they need to ask smarter questions," said E.J. McMahon, director of the Empire Center for New York State Policy, "the Benchmarking New York database will promote a more-informed public discussion of the forces driving high local taxes in every corner of New York.”
